oh, I see the issue now.

if we call TestRun::run_tests multiple times, each set of tests is sent to 
Test::Harness as a batch.  so, calling it pre and post run results in three 
sets of reports.

I have the start of an implementation now (working via t/TEST) but am 
hesitant to work on it more unless we think that three reports is ok for 
this feature.  there will also have to be some trickery involved - if one 
set returns failure the remaining sets don't run - but I'm not sure where to 
put it.

at any rate, the remaining issues are probably trivial if we can accept a 
change in output.  if not, I'm not sure how this would work.
